i have a 30gig c drive which i split into two partitons.
with xp on the front end using 9 gig as i wasnt sure it
was going to be ok on my system.
I also have me on back end of c drive 20gig.

is there a way to delete the me partition and allocate the whole drive to xp without losing my data on the xp side as this
os has a perfect install with everything running perfectly.

i partitioned the drive using partition magic.
please tell me i can as my me is infected with a virus that none of the vr's can do anything with i have been trying for days.
and nobody here has been able to help, although they have all
tried admirably and my thanks go to all who tried

You should be able to reformat the me partition and use partition magic once again to join the two partitions. If it was me I would just format the partition and use if to install apps to rather than having everything on the boot drive
